Having my own desk space is really important to me. My husband and I share an office and the same desk. I do sometimes use his desk but since turning my dressing table into a work space I’m so much happier with it.
Using the dressing table meant that I couldn’t use the PC. I have an old laptop that I used to use but then hubby put Linux on it and I really don’t like it. So I needed to come up with a solution for me to blog while hubby used the computer.
My mum kindly gave me her old iPad. I think it’s an iPad 4. It does the job. When I got it I thought I’d be able to prop it up on my desk and then type away. I ordered a Bluetooth keyboard, which I absolutely love. I don’t know how I’d use a tablet without it. Now I just wish you could use a mouse too!
The kind folks at Filofax sent me a case for my iPad. I adore this geometric pattern print case – as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I wish they did a Filofax A5 organiser in this pattern.
The great thing about these cases is that you can rotate the tablet 360 degrees. This means I can stand it up in the case portrait to type a document or landscape to watch Netflix while doing the washing up.
The case also has pockets for a notebook or other bits you want to keep in there. I leave notepaper inside so that if I see anything online I can quickly make a note of it. There’s also a handy pen loop too, which reminds me of my old Filofax planer.
Being able to work at my “desk” has really helped me become more organised. I can work whenever I want (when Eleanor is asleep) and transport my office setup around the house.
I wouldn’t have thought Filofax wouldn’t be my first port of call for tablet cases but they have such beautiful designs I’d definitely recommend having a look. You can find this case and others on the Filofax website.
Disclaimer: Filofax kindly let me pick a tablet case from their website. As always, all opinions are my own honest views.
